Doorstep Table Runner
This table runner or small lap quilt is based on a local Minton tiled doorstep. The one shown in the main picture is very different from the original doorstep which, like most tiled steps, is terracotta, greys and black. I chose to remake mine in springtime florals. This runner pattern was first trialled with students at a Chris and Barbara workshop as a Mystery so they were made in a variety of colours and fabrics, no one guessing that the original design was taken from Minton tiles.
The runner will finish at 38 x 20 inches and the pattern includes an optional extra border (as in the original doorstep) which will make a larger runner or small lap quilt at 45 x 27 inches.
